    Hi,
    I am in H4 status and have not earned a single dollar since that happened. worse than that I feel that I am loosing touch of my skills. I sure want to go back to work once my kid goes to school which is 2 more years down the line! Recently, I explored about Android programming and have been wondering if people like me might be interested in joining the band wagon! if you explore more, you will learn that Android programming pays well ..like in the range of 80K for freshers even! the software is free to download, which to me sounds great!!

    if you are interested, buzz me!
    Thanks!

    Awesome Gauthu!
    I am following the book "Android App Development" for dummies. Can u tell something about yourself? Do you have a preference of a book? Also, I am hoping to find more people/study buddy's so we can motivate each other and can add this new skill to our resumes. What do you think? Share the word and lets make good use of this time we have. We may not bring home a paycheck right now, but we can sure bring a big raise to our compensation pay the next time we go back to work! what do u think?

    take care,
    Ishani

    Ishani... I am going through the coursera website with the basics.Def this is going to be a fun learning and planned to have an hobby project .But i am lacking motivation and couldnt focus more ... well about me I had a prior expierence of four years in IT. But android programming is bit new , i seen my friends learning through websites which offfers the basic tutorial and you can practise there. There are many online discussions too where you can get your doubts clarified. Can you Send a PM. we can work out an action plan :)

    Gauthu : Same situation here. I cannot send PM yet because of the post count restriction. Can we chat through indusladies itself? Or is chatting same as sending a PM. Bit new to IL :)
    Do you have the environment setup done at your PC/Mac? I am hitting a roadblock with running the simulator as my processor does not support vitualization yet. I will be troubleshooting that and find a solution. I will look into coursera website's tutorial. Right now I am following the Android app development for dummies book, 3rd Edition.

    Asha : I too need motivation. And I feel this virtual study thing will keep each other motivated and hopefully complete the course. do you have a set up at home yet?
    I need to check out the website too! And Thanks for joining!

    @Gauthu: Thanks for joining me. I was kind of unmotivated seeing no one respond within a day. I was hoping big turnouts. But Nevermind. It is better to have less but focused people, than more people who are still on the fence about learning!
